Aim of this study is to determine the fish biodiversity of Daday Stream placed in Kastamonu province. Daday Stream confluences with Gökırmak river, which is one of the main branch of Kızılırmak. Also, Gökırmak confluences with Kızılırmak, after passing through the Sinop province. Daday Stream, branch of the Kızılırmak basin, is used for agricultural irrigation and recreational fishing nowadays. Samples collected in various dates were fixed in 4% formaldehyde solution. After that, samples were dehydrated through an alcohol series and were kept in 70% ethanol for long-term preservation. Fixed samples were measured, counted and various indexes were calculated. After measuring, counting and calculating processes, distribution of Capoeta baliki, Squalius cf. pursakensis, Alburnus chalcoides, Alburnoides tzanevi, Oxyneomachilus banerescui, Oxyneomachilus kosswigi and Oxynoemachailus angarae species was determined.
